Re: ad hominem fallacy
I'm reading and writing English too - and I summed up and dealt with all the points you seemed to be making.

quote:

f you're determined to be so obtuse that you'll deny that people call people "fool" in response to arguments that they hope to discredit, there's absolutely no example - fictional or authentic - I can present that you simply won't be more obtuse in response to.

You mean that if I won't accept your unsupported opinion I wouldn't accept any evidence either. Nice example of poisoning the well.

quote:

Look, I'll do it right now, dipshit.

Since I wasn't advancing an argument for you to discredit your "example" doesn't work.

Well, you just proved me right, didn't you?

If you're not defending a position, precisely what are you doing? Masturbating? Thanks for the waste of time, I guess.

Closing time comes early
If anyone wants to further debate what an ad hominem, it better be in a specialized topic and not in the version 13 of the "General Discussion..." topic. Likewise for any other specialized type focuses.
